Virus stops malwarebytes or any other scan device/program

Recommended Posts

I have windows XP and got a XP Security scan 2012 virus.

I was able to use a tool online (winlogon.exe ) and got rid of that virus, but then I have another that I guess was in my browser that sent me to spam websites every time I went on the internet. I already had malwarbytes and a few others installed on my CPU so I ran each trying to get rid of it. Problem is as soon as I started the scan the virus would kill the program and it would disappear. If I tried to run them again it tells me I do not have permission. I tried all this in safe mode and as administrator and nothing has worked. Last thing I tried I guess I somehow downloaded Windows XP Repair (it says under properties its real name is 20373284.exe) and also downloaded Paretologic PC Health Advisor which was actually able to run and says I have 200 errors most of which are in my registry. Unfortunately, It will not let me clean the CPU unless I buy the program and I can not seem to get online even if I wanted to purchase it. When I ran this scan I had a lot of errors come up and then my computer shut down. When I booted it back up everything was gone however I noticed after doing some digging that everything is simply hidden on the computer and it is just hard to find. I have a 300gb external hard drive that I can save everything to if I need to reboot windows, but when I plug it in I can not find it in my computer with all the other drives to send all my files to.

Any help you could be would be much appreciated. I am using my home computer to send you this. Thanks in advance for helping me.

I just went through the topic called "clever Trojan Stops Malwarebytes and Hijack This from running"

I downloaded the ComboFix, but once is started running I got an error saying !!ALERT!! It is NOT SAFE to continue! the contents of the ComboFix package has been compromised. Please download a fresh copy from: www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Note: You may be infected with a file patching virus 'Virut'

Is this legit or is this another virus? Please HELP ASAP
